“This is a "must stay" hotel.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 July 2014

The staff was very friendly and helpful from checkin to checkout. The suite was large and comfortable. The quality and variety of food at breakfast was so enjoyable. I will be back to stay at this hotel again.

Room Tip: I'm sure all of the suites are very nice.

We stayed here with our son and my mother and father in law. We had stayed here before and enjoyed our stay. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will stay there again next time we are in Ithaca. My in-laws were amazed that we not only got breakfast but also dinner (it has been awhile since they had stayed in a hotel, and never one like this). The quality of the breakfast was very good with a good selection. We usually treat the dinner as a time to have a beer or wine and treat the food as an appetizer before we go to dinner, but the quality was better than expected and my in-laws ate it as dinner. The room was nice and the housekeeping staff kept it that way. This was our second stay at this hotel and we will absolutely stay there next time we are in Ithaca.

We stayed here as our home-base for a group of women doing wine tours of Senneca and Cauyga lake. We love having a suite that could accommodate 5 people and the free breakfast and evening reception were a definite plus. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful.

Let's get the few quibbles out of the way first. The hotel advertises that it has a tennis court, but it does not. There is an outdoor basketball halfcourt that they can put a net across which results in maybe a one quarter size tennis court, not enough to play a game or rally on. The outdoor grills are filthy on the inside. With that out of the way, this really is an excellent hotel- the staff is friendly, helpful, and competent. The rooms are in very good condition- clean, comfortable beds, all suites with lots of space, nice mini-kitchen. The complimentary internet has great speed and coverage. The complimentary breakfast is decent quality and filling. The indoor pool is ok- not that big and a bit shallow, but kids will find it fine, and there is a hot tub as well. The fitness center is small, and the treadmill squeaked loudly, but it was pretty empty the entire stay. The hotel is located up the hill from Ithaca and Cornell in a mall area. You will have to drive to get to those areas. There is an outpost of Ithaca Bakery in the adjacent mall which has good breakfast and lunch items. All in all, this place gets right all the most important aspects of a hotel stay for us, and deserves consideration for anyone staying in the area.

Pros: very, neat, actually elegant for a home wood; 10 min drive to the very beautiful Cornell campus and the college town district which has a few eateries (typical college town style, not many)..decent enough breakfast. Loved that the chef (nice lady) came out and went around the tables asking how everything was.


Cons(?): a bit pricey specially for a Monday night and during summer in a college town.. adjoining a smallish strip mall, it can be a +ve for some, I didn't like it though. It is right next to a highway though sound wasn't a prob.. We stayed1 bed room suite which was an accessible and hence had a roll in shower instead of a bathtub...from other reviews, it seems, there aren't tubs, which may be disconcerting for some..FTP

All in all, if you are stopping over for a night on way to niagra and would like to catch a glimpse of the Cornell campus (instead of touring the cpfinger lakes winery 45 min away), this is a neat place to stay. Try it.

It's a shame when you spend your entire business life staying faithful to a certain hotel chain only to have them treat you less than desirable. It is not a given to earn the highest honor in Hilton without spending a tremendous amount of time and money with Hilton to reach Diamond status to have it dismissed like you don't exist.

Stayed in a one bedroom "suite" at this Homewood Suites property in Ithaca, New York. If you are visiting Cornell University, this is a very convenient location, although in a somewhat strange little area surrounded by strip shopping venues. The room was pleasant, with a nice sitting area and a well-equipped kitchen. While the bathroom was fine, I don't like the sink effectively in the bedroom, and worse, the shower (no tub) had incredibly low water pressure. That was true in the evening as well as the morning, so I can't attribute it to excess use, but probably the shower head fixture. I found this to be a major drawback.

The hotel provides a complimentary breakfast which was certainly adequate, although the staff was overwhelmed with the crowd, and there were short or no supplies of plates, utensils, and one of the coffees. Weekdays, I gather there are also light suppers and drinks offered at no charge.

Overall, for a short stay this was a good choice, but the shower situation really needs to be improved upon for any extended stay.
